The next exciting Conference of the Calorie Restriction Society International will be held May 18-21 at the Hilton Tucson East in Tucson, Arizona, close to the University of Arizona’s main campus. Come join your fellow CR Society members to learn the results of cutting-edge CR science. Interact directly with key researchers in the fields of CR, metabolism, and the retardation of aging. Learn more from scientists and fellow practitioners about how to optimize your CR practice. And enjoy the beautiful Tucson spring!

Tour of Biosphere 2
We are planning for group tour of Biosphere 2, the 3.14 acre “living laboratory” in which CR pioneer Dr. Roy Walford conducted the groundbreaking first studies in human Calorie restriction, on Saturday afternoon. There will be an extra $20 cost for those attending.
Conference attendees will receive special group rates of $89 to $99 per night for single occupancy and $10 per night for additional guests in rooms with either two queen or one king bed at the Hilton Tucson East.
